LogiCORE IP DisplayPort - Does DisplayPort support Adaptive-Sync or G-Sync by NVIDIA?

Description

G-Sync is a technology by NVIDIA, which is used to eliminate screen tearing and the need for software deterrents such as VSYNC.

G-Sync eliminates screen tearing by forcing a video display to adapt to the frame rate of the outputting device rather than the other way around as in traditional methods.

This eliminates the problem where a  refresh could occur halfway through the process of a frame being output by the device, resulting in two frames being shown at once.

In this technology the VSYNC and HSYNC should be adaptive.

Does Xilinx Support this Adaptive-Sync or G-Sync?

Solution

The Xilinx DisplayPort IP does not support Adaptive-Sync or G-Sync technology.
